A Good Bookstore is...


Here's my definition of a good local independent bookstore.

I actually live above a comic book store called TSETSE comics, in Antwerp Belgium. They are really small but they organize things like kids drawing workshops, invited me and other artists to make drawings on the wrapping paper during christmas etc. Very personal approach!

Here's a picture

Haslaam's in St. Pete, Fl is one such bookstore. It has new, used and antiquarian books. Before they caught on to what art books were valuable my friends I were able to stock up on collectible books by the likes of John F. Carlson, Henry Hensche, Richard Schmid, Emile Gruppe and others. They also have a set of first edition Loomis books but unfortunately those went straight into the collectible case. If you're ever in St. Pete it's a local treasure.

This would make a great poster! Ann Arbor has a new brick and mortar bookstore, Literati. Their opening was met with skepticism from some. Many of us, however, are willing to occasionally forego Amazon and pay a bit more for books in order to have a place where authors give readings and staff picks face out on shelves. On a recent visit, I discovered the perfect book for a friend. It leapt out and introduced itself to me.

Hands down...Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon. World's largest used bookstore.

Very nice lettering on that one as well.

I actually bought my condo because it's next to my favorite bookstore, Vroman's in Pasadena, California.
